2. Yesterday I went to Fleet Feet in Adams Morgan and picked up my bib for Sunday's race. I think it's great that the Frederick Running Festival does these remote pick ups. They were in a different location each day this week and yesterday was DC. It was definitely one of the reasons I decided to run this race since the idea of driving up to Frederick twice in one weekend (or paying for a hotel room) was pretty unappealing. It's always nice when races get these kind of logistics right!
3. As usual, the predicted weather for Sunday has been changing every day. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we are going to enjoy the overcast cool weather that was around last weekend, but we are going to avoid the crazy high temperatures that are around right now. The current prediction is high of 72, low of 52 and humidity at a lovely 73%. Fortunately the race starts at 7:00, but I'm sure the 50s won't stick around for too long. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm going to wear, but I've decided to take an informal poll.
At what temperature (and/or level of humidity) would you switch from this outfit:
To this one:
I don't generally run in just a sports bra, even in the middle of summer, and this would be my first time ever doing it in a race (if that's the outfit I pick). But if it will improve my comfort level, I'm willing to try it.
